SANA'A, March 11, 2011- hundreds of thousands of people participated on Friday in a mass festival in downtown of the capital Sana'a, expressing their support to the initiative of President Ali Abdullah Saleh to develop the political system.
The participants in the pro-festival lifted President Saleh's photos and slogans calling for peaceful dialogue to address the political tension and save the nation from sedition.
They chanted slogans condemning the opposition parties' disavowal of dialogue and all the political agreements signed with them on issues of concern to the country.
In contrast, the participants repeated mottos in favor of the President Saleh's initiative to form a unity government to oversee the conduct of the elections as well as the formation of a sub-committee from representatives of Parliament and the Shura Council to prepare a new constitution and put it to a referendum later this year by the people.
The participants expressed their regret for the subversive slogans adopted by the opposition parties to topple the regime through chaos and coup against the constitutional legitimacy and democracy.
On Thursday in a general national conference held in outdoor stadium in Sana'a, President Saleh announced an initiative to give solution for the current Yemeni crisis and develop the political system and to let succeed the comprehensive national dialogue with all political forces at the Yemeni arena.
